    Default 10 Day Contracts (Uzoh, Andersen re-signed & Dentmon signed)

    The Toronto Raptors announced Friday they have re-signed guard-forward Alan Anderson and guard Ben Uzoh to second 10-day contracts. The Raptors signed Anderson to his original 10-day March 26 and Uzoh on March 27.

    Anderson, 6-foot-6, 220 pounds, has appeared in six games with Toronto, starting one contest. He has averaged 5.8 points, 2.0 rebounds and 16.0 minutes. He totaled 13 points (5-7 FG, 3-4 3FG) and four rebounds in Wednesday’s win at Philadelphia. It was his first starting assignment since April 17, 2006 as a member of the Charlotte Bobcats.

    Anderson came to the Raptors from the NBA D-League’s Canton Charge, where he averaged 21.5 points and 4.6 rebounds in eight appearances.

    Uzoh has appeared in five games with the Raptors, averaging 3.2 points, 2.6 assists and 12.0 minutes.

    Uzoh, 6-foot-3, 205 pounds, joined the Raptors from the NBA D-League’s Rio Grande (Texas) Valley Vipers. He averaged 14.8 points, 5.8 rebounds, 3.9 assists and 30.8 minutes in 20 appearances.

    The Toronto Raptors announced Friday they have signed guard Justin Dentmon to a 10-day contract. He is the 49th GATORADE Call-Up of the 2011-12 NBA D-League season.

    Dentmon has averaged 22.8 points, 5.5 assists and 37.2 minutes in 40 games, all starts, with the NBA D-League’s Austin (Texas) Toros. He ranks fourth in the league in scoring, seventh in assists and fourth in minutes. He is shooting .429 from three-point range (5th in NBADL) and .870 from the charity stripe (11th).

    In two NBA D-League campaigns, Dentmon has appeared in 90 games, with 75 starts, averaging 20.7 points, 4.7 assists and 36.0 minutes. He spent the 2010-11 season with the Texas Legends, where he contributed 19.1 points and 4.0 assists in 50 outings. In two playoff contests with the Legends, he averaged 10.0 points and 4.0 assists.

    A D-League All-Star, Dentmon has scored in double figures in 39 of 40 games, including 30 games with 20 or more and six games with 30 or more points.

    Dentmon signed a 10-day contract with San Antonio on March 24. He appeared in two games with the Spurs, totaling four points, one assist and one steal in 19 minutes.

    The 6-foot, 185 pounder was undrafted in 2009 out of the University of Washington, where he was a first-team All-Pac-10 performer as a senior. He spent the 2009-10 season playing in Israel, Venezuela and the Dominican Republic.

    The roster stands at 15 players heading into tonight’s game vs. Cleveland (TSN / Sportsnet 590 The FAN).

    I wonder how Dentmon fares with the team. Uzoh and especially Anderson were mocked when originally signed yet they have been contributors in winnings 4 of the last 5 games (again, especially Anderson).

    I like the Raps giving these guys legit shots at playing time (they sort of have to with injuries) but even still, letting Anderson start, pretty nice.

    Did anyone see how emotional Anderson was getting after the Philly win when Leo interviewed him? Made me realize how big of a deal this actually is for a d-leaguer.

    Anderson is no D-leaguer. He's a 30 years old player with great and long experience overseas. He played last year in Barcelona, one of the biggest clubs in Europe and won the Spanish league. He's a good,cheap veteran to keep around. Uzoh and Dentmon are both D-leaguers, but not Anderson.

    I am wondering how the pg rotation will play out tonight and into the off season. BC might be searching for that Norris Coles/Isaiah Thomas type discovery that he can get a lot of mileage out of without a big contract.

    The Raptors will want to give playing time to Dentmon even though Uzoh has been doing a credible job as Calderon's back up.

    Seems like Dentmon is also a scorer. He also was picked up by the Spurs (and then let go) and they are good judges of talent. Apparently he was signed with them because of Parker's hamstring problems and he is back now. Anderson seems like a not bad depth guy to have longer term.

    Can we resign Wil Solomon?! we can count on him to try to be his very best and at least attempt to stop Toronto's winning streak.

    Well, we'll be able to see a lot of the 10-day guys tonight. All our ball handlers are out - Jose (eye), Forbes (Knee), and JB.
